Application June 10, 1939, Serial No. 278,38!

This invention relates to collars and has for 'an object to provide means for making the fold line thereof permanent. I

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved construction of collar which may be used as a separate collar structure of the fold over type or an attached collar of the same type.

This type of collar consists of a cape portion and a band portion, with the cape folding over the band at the junction of the two parts along what is known as the fold line are.

Fig. 11 is a perspective view of the finished collar. e

In carrying out the objects of the invention the cape interlining I may be of any desired fabric which is now commonly used for themterlining of collars.

vhowever, is made from a permanently finished It is common knowledge that in collars as made today, it is possible in production to position the "foldline are" as desired, but nomeans has been found to make it permanent and prevent its distortion in repeated launderings.

In collars such as described in Patents Nee.

2,038,880 and 2,033,681 a fold line is provided that makes it possible to readily shape the collar but the object of this invention is, not only to provide a definite line of fold but a means of making it permanent.

, It will be found with the use of the permanent finished lining in the band portion of the collar and the application of the beading along the entire length of the fold line arc, there is established 'a definite fold line and a means of supporting it.

In the accompanying drawing- Fig. i. is an elevation of a collar embodying the invention, certain parts being broken away for better illustrating the construction;

Fig. 2 is an elevation of the cape interlining of the collar shown in Fig. i;

Fig. 3 is an illustration of the band interlinlns of the collar shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is an elevation of a pleated or braided web having a beaded edge adapted to be used along the upper edge of the band interlining;

Fig. 5 is a fragmenttary view of the left-hand end of the structure shown in Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive, and illustrating how they are connected together; a

Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. .5 but showing the outer finished plies stitched to the cape and band interlinings;

Fig. 'l is an, enlarged sectional view through Fig. 5 approximately on the line |-e1;

Fig. 8 is an enlarged sectional view through Fig. 6 on the line l-Q:

1'18. 9 shows the construction illustrated Figs. 6 and 8 but turned inside out:

10 is asectional viewthroughFlgJi on the line il-ll, the same being on an enlarged fabric such as described in Patent No. 2,150,825, issued March 14, 1939. This'fabric has the characteristic of maintaining its weight and firmness through repeated laundering operations and holds the collar to the original designed shape.

While the permanent finished band lining is wholly responsible for supporting and maintaining the fold line are for the life of the collar, it has been found that the band lining, on account of its stiffness, has a tendency to kink when the collar is shaped.

To overcome this fault, and also to add flexibility to the-fold line, it has been necessary to introduce along the entire length of the fold line a "braided" or'pleated web, well known to the industry for other uses, which has a beading of tube-like construction along one edge, thus producing more flexibility in the fold line.

After the two interlinings have been properly cut or formed they are overlapped, as shown in Fig. 7, and then a braid or pleated web 8 is applied. This web is well known in the trade and is provided with a flat portion 1 and a beaded portion I of tubular construction along one edge 0! the fiat portion. This braid or web is arranged as shown in Fig. 7 and then the respective lines of stitching 8 and ID are applied for securing all the parts together, placing the fold line arc" entirely within the cape portion, causing the collar to fold slightly above the neckband tabs it (see broken line 5, Fig. 1) producing the shoulders which raise the fold line and gives the collar :1 rolled front.

The beading 8 forms the margin for the lower,

edge of the fold, all of the fold being disposed appear as shown in Fig. 8. Aline of stitching I3 is provided along the top and ends of the combined structure, after which the combined structure is turned inside out so that the parts will appear'as illustrated in Fig. 9. After this has been done, a line of stitching II is provided across The band interlining 2,

2 stitching n" at the center. The lower edge ll oi' the combined structure. is left unstitched when the collaristo be attached, but where it is to be detachable the lower edge may be turned in or folded over to produce a finished structure. ,When the parts are folded as shown in Fig. 10.
